In 2016, he was appointed Professor of Translational Immunology at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. His research focuses on cellular, molecular and metabolic pathways involved in the maintenance and break of immunological self-tolerance as well as the onset and resolution of inflammation. In particular, he is trying to understand the mechanisms and events leading to the development of inflammatory autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematodes and to develop novel strategies for their diagnosis and treatment.
